On May 19, the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation invited Museum Members to an eagerly awaited inauguration. Nearly 600 of them turned out for a memorable evening to salute both the Museum’s 25th birthday and Montréal's 375th anniversary.
Sylvie Dufresne, President of the Members of Pointe-à-Callière, and Francine Lelièvre, the Museum’s Executive Director, were pleased to welcome them to this exclusive inauguration for Members of the Fort Ville-Marie – Quebecor Pavilion and the Memory Collector. It was a real privilege to be among the first to walk above the authentic remains of the first habitation that housed Montréal’s founders!
As part of celebrations to mark Montréal’s 375th, Members also enjoyed an exclusive view of the Giants’ first steps, from the 360° Montréal Space, and many of them also attended the shows launching the Encounters in New France festivities.
About 20 Members also volunteered to help out during the three days of Encounters in New France, and welcomed record crowds over the long weekend from May 20 to 22. Their support helped make the event a real success.
